This is the ninth book in the series of traditional stories for children retold by the Afghan author Idries Shah.  In this tale Fatima’s life is beset with what seem to be disasters. Her journey leads her from Morocco to the Mediterranean, Egypt, Turkey and, finally, to China. It is in China that she realizes that what seemed at the time to be really unfortunate events were an integral part of her eventual fulfillment.

Young readers can make connections with their own lives and explore the deeper meanings of the concepts of misfortune, opportunity, and ultimate happiness. The story also provides an excellent opportunity to build children’s vocabulary and literacy skills while developing their appreciation for good literature.
